TOP 100 REVIEWERon 4 September 2017
A medley of delights await in 'The Listerdale Mystery' by Agatha Christie - a book of twelve shorts by the Queen of Crime, first published, as a collection, in 1934. It's a real mixed bag of varying emotions - containing, amongst others, tales of mystery, romance and downright fun - headlined by 'The Listerdale Mystery' itself. Whilst I prefer the depth of the novels, this is ,overall, a very enjoyable read and quite nice to dip into - the Kindle version is well formatted and allows 'jumping into' stories direct from the list of contents, should you wish. A pleasant and, often lighthearted, change of pace.

Although I rate Agatha Christie as one of the great crime writers of all time I wasn't enthusiastic about this book.The storylines did grip you but I felt left you up in the air.I was waiting for the next chapter when I realized the story had come to an end,which happened a couple of times.I know that was probably the idea to leave you thinking but I much prefer a book that has a conclusion.Others may find that they enjoy this approach.It was not badly written but not my favourite of Agatha Christie.Give me Poirot and Miss Marple every time.

Excellent listening. I was amazed at the marvellous reading by Hugh Fraser. It is nearly word for word as the book of the same title and a wonderful companion when alone.

For lovers of Agatha Christie these short stories show a different side to her writing abilities using only a few pages to draw you in and keep the suspense going you don't get the gradual build up as with her stand alone novels but do get a chance to see other aspects to her writing great for a winters evening or for those times when you want to quickly lose yourself in a story

Not a straight forward set of mysteries - brings out her fun side in several, also her more romantic side. What an interesting woman she was.
